    I was thinking of getting Mario Tennis Open but do you think it's worth it? I'm only getting it because it has online.

    If I were you ill wait till its price drops on Amazon, $40 is to much for a tennis game, unless your a big fan. Im also exited for the online.

    Don't they sell for $32 (at retail stores)? I bought Mario Kart 7 about a month after it's release date and it was that much.

    I've loved all the Mario Tennis games so far. GBC, GBA, N64 and GC versions were all great. I just wish it was an RPG game like the portable ones.

    Some hybrid between Hyrule and Cerulean City
    It may be. The other Mario Tennis games were great, and this has online.

    Better wait for reviews i almost never pre-order games.

    I'm considering it. I haven't played a Mario Tennis game since the original on N64, and it was one of my favorites, as well as the only real Mario sports game I liked (unless you count Mario Kart).

    Its such a shame that the RPG mode from the Gameboy games has gone. Now its just another Mario spin off.

    It looks more like a $20 - $25. I would buy the game used or wait a few months to buy after the price drop.

    I can't imagine it wouldn't. it would be horribly stupid of Nintendo to not include 1 player mode on a handheld game.

    The N64 and Gamecube games didn't, that's all I know.

    It isn't quite the same, the GBC title had a full RPG for you to mess with that had a small plot, characters to like, and a world to explore.

    Let's not get our hope down yet. We shall know if it is better or worse when it gets released.
